World Bank Corporate Scorecard, 2014

    Description
    In 2013, the overarching World Bank Group (WBG) mission of a world free of poverty was reinforced by the establishment of ambitious goals:

    • ending extreme poverty by reducing the percentage of people living on less than $1.25 a day to three percent by 2030; and

    • promoting shared prosperity by fostering income growth for the bottom 40 percent of the population in every developing country.

    This enhanced focus on fighting poverty underlines the World Bank Group’s commitment to support global endeavours and individual countries’ efforts to overcome development challenges. The Strategy adopted in 2013 outlined how the World Bank Group will partner more effectively with clients to help them achieve these goals through economic growth, inclusion, and sustainability and resilience.

    The implementation of the Strategy is being monitored by the World Bank Group Corporate Scorecard which was first presented in April 2014. It provides an apex view of the results and performance indicators of the three World Bank Group institutions—the World Bank (WB), the International Finance Corporation (IFC), and the Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency (MIGA). The World Bank Group Corporate Scorecard is complemented by the World Bank Corporate Scorecard as well as the revised IFC and MIGA Scorecards.

    This brochure presents the World Bank Group and World Bank Corporate Scorecards updated with fiscal year 2014 data. All four Scorecards are living documents to be adapted and improved based on experience with their implementation and evolving external and internal priorities.
